These essays form a conjectural historiography of how aspects of Philippine media shape and are shaped by various political, economic, and cultural infrastructures. As a whole, the collection renders visibly the forms, contents, and substantiations of the experiences of Philippine necolonialisms and media cultures. Drawing from Raymond Williams's seminal and innovative work, Keywords, the essays trace the origin and development of key terms, concepts, and words that have influenced and are influenced by Philippine media in the nation's transnational experience with neocolonialism. Philippine media becomes a symptom and receptacle of its own neocolonialisms.
